Skin Cancer Detection and Treatment
As Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world, we believe it is essential to have a thorough skin check. We offer thorough head to toe skin checks using Mole Map Check.
We believe early detection is your best protection. This is why we detect and manage a range of skin cancers including pre-cancerous skin lesions such as actinic keratosis. We recommend annual skin checks with three monthly self skin checks to our clients.
Advantage Skin Clinic offers a range of treatment options for pre-cancerous skin lesions and skin cancers.
This may include:
Immune therapy as field treatment
A consultation with one of our Doctors is required prior to surgical or medical management of a lesion. The Doctor will provide you with information regarding the lesion and your treatment options during this consultation. Confirmation of the diagnosis will be obtained through excision or biopsy of the lesion and sending the specimen for histopathology. This provides an accurate diagnosis and will inform the Doctor of further management of the lesion or condition.
Biopsy/excision information sheets will be provided after a procedure to ensure optimal care is maintained.
Our Registered Nurse is available Monday to Friday for any queries relating to the excision/biopsy process or for any questions post procedure.
Pricing is dependent on the lesion removed and its location. The pricing, downtime and potential complications will be discussed during your consultation and prior to the excision or biopsy.
